6. 想做的水上运动

Off the top of my head, the first water sport that I’d like to give a try in the future is swimming. In all honesty30, I’m a newbie31 when it comes to swimming. I have no idea how to
swim, I just never learned how to.

My friend told me it’s a little tricky32 to learn how to float in the water at the beginning, but after I grasp that skill, the rest will be a piece of cake33. I think it’s really important to stick to practicing on a regular basis, otherwise all the efforts trying to learn how to swim will be wasted.

Fortunately, even though I never learned how to swim, there are a ton of places near me where I can practice and learn. For example, I can sign up for a swimming class for beginners at my
university. Besides, a new swimming center was just built in our neighborhood, which makes it a breeze to sign up for classes.

Anyway, as for why I want to learn swimming, well… I’ve heard a lot from my friends that swimming can do wonders for34 building body shape. It involves the activity of each and every muscle in your body, which helps strengthen the body and promote good health35. Plus, other kinds of water sports,like diving, sailing, or surfing, are more difficult for me. The intensity of the thrill36 of those sports makes me worry about my own safety. So, honestly, swimming feels much safer to learn as a sport.

 


30 In all honesty:
老实说,坦白说
31 newbie:菜鸟,新手
32 tricky:
比较难的,棘手的
33 a piece of cake:很简单,很容易
34 do wonders for:有利于…
35 strengthen the body and promote good health:强身健体
36 The intensity of the thrill:高强度的刺激感
